      The former top FBI agent for counterintelligence in New York has been charged with a former Soviet diplomat with violating U.S. sanctions on Russia by providing services to the oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

      Charles McGonigal also was charged Monday in Washington in connection with accepting $225,000 in cash β€” while working at the FBI β€” from a former employee of a foreign intelligence service.

      “Mr. McGonigal betrayed his solemn oath to the United States in exchange for personal gain and at the expense of our national security,” said FBI Assistant Director in Charge Donald Alway.

      The former top FBI agent in New York for counterintelligence was arrested with an ex-Russian diplomat and charged with violating U.S. sanctions on Russia after he left the FBI by trying to help the oligarch Oleg Deripaska get off the sanctions list, federal prosecutors said Monday.

      Trump’s gloating will likely be insufferable, and might break social media, lol.

      Political analyst Pat Brody tweeted the news on Monday afternoon and said McGonigal was part of the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s alleged connections to Russia during the 2016 election.

      “Former FBI agent Charles McGonigal, who was head of counterintelligence in the New York Field Office and a part of the investigation into supposed ties between Trump and Russia, has been arrested for his alleged ties to Russia,” Brody tweeted.
